The BBC are predicting that it's going to rain heavily tomorrow; Weather.co.uk suggest rain tonight, tomorrow and on Saturday. But Gigwise found someone prepared to buck the gloomy predictions:
His daughter, talking to the NME, was slightly less positive about the prospects, but still upbeat:
"It's beautiful down here today, It's boiling hot," Eavis explained. "I'm expecting a bit of a shower at some point over the weekend but we think it will be pretty fine all weekend from knowing what it's like here."

Back to Michael Eavis, finally: the first video from this year's events to hit YouTube is this, shot at the official opening:
